, but in closing i want to go back again and harp on my jimmy carter issue of earlier and i'm going to take this quote. it says "soon after jimmy carter installed solar panels on the white house. a generation from now i think this is in the 70's or early 80's the solar heater can be a surcosity, a museum piece, a example of a road not taken, or a small part of one of the greatest adventures under taken by the american people and harness the power of the sun and move away from the crippling dependence on foreign oil, and again at that point we can say that the solar panels were a museum piece. i am hoping cleanpower sf isn't this interesting idea that creeped up and disappeared because of all the misinformation and whatever that certain interests will probably have in seeing this sort of plan not succeed, so again when i was 16 my first venture into politics was through this group called "people for safe energy" in fresno and i was 17 and our first venture was to go to the power plant and protest the fact they wanted to have a nuclear power plant sitting next to an earthquake fault. in j

[laughter] thank you so much. you are holding us up. i think that's the key. and i bet i won't even have time to formally say thank you and good by two miles so i will just say two miles how eloquent his little segue introductions have been and tell him goodbye and are low and all the rest of you for coming. i am supposed to read something. i was fretting about what that would be because i wanted to make it very short. i am going to read from the end of the prologue. one of the things that i was trying to stress in the talk that i gave yesterday and indeed the panel that i had appeared on the day before is that for all of the undeniable, appalling, dark side of ernest hemingway there was also the light. there was this bone of generosity and sometimes it came out best when a child was involved and not his own child necessarily, and especially an ill child. who would not respond to that? but he seems to respond in a special way. and so i was thinking of reading something of a key west passage and i said no, th
back as a man of the people, as jimmy carter did? there is careful balance. when you look at some of this material, you can see over time that, in fact, they are carefully crafting it as well. i have always been amazed in looking at jimmy carter's inaugural serial, how informal his material tends to be compared to other presidents, and it is clearly a statement that following the nixon years, the imperial presidency, they were going to have a residency of the people -- presidency of the people. you notice that on his tickets, rather than having an inaugural ball, he has an inaugural party, which is a clear statement. then, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says s

's that you attended and where the crowd sizes? guest: my first one was 1977, jimmy carter. i was a 20-year-old political science major and it was already on my bucket list to go to the inauguration. host: it was the last one on the east front of the capital. guest: absolutely. i think about the difference, maybe not so much the crowds. but it is the security situation. at that time, i stayed in a hotel on pennsylvania avenue. a friend had come with me. i think we just walked straight up pennsylvania avenue. i am not even sure we had a ticket. we stood behind the east front of the capitol and had a very good view. host: you could see the president directly. guest: absolutely. we were very close. after that, we just ran from the east front down it to pennsylvania avenue, a constitution, and watched the parade. so we got to see jimmy carter. he walked. we were so shocked and thrilled to see him do that, and part of the whole ceremony to me is the combination of pomp and populism. jimmy carter had that touch. host: professor lusane, you have written about african-americans in their american ex

will mention, when i was 12 years old, i was here at the inauguration of jimmy carter, the last inauguration on the east side of the capital. and then four years later, when ronald reagan was inaugurated on the west front. sometimes he is credited for making that change, but that change was in the world for quite awhile. it would have been on the west front with carter, later, had ts turn that different. the view on the east front, compared to the west front was not very good. the east front used to be a parking lot, and then you have homes. parking lot, streets, kind of like a little town. whereas, here on the west side, you can accommodate these immense crowds. and they can see something. >> of course, president obama's first inaugural was attended by over a million people, i believe, gathering on the mall. the expectations is it will be somewhere about half that tomorrow. that is typical of second inauguration's. they are not as well -- publicly attended as the first. i think it is because the country is not as excited, they know who you are, they have seen you. my friend, who was also a
